How to set up the employee form in Lobbytrack

In Lobbytrack, your employees are the hosts. The visitors select a host from the list of your employees while going through the sign in process as well. These hosts can also download and use the lobbytrack employee app to schedule a visit in case they are expecting a visitor. You can also send email, push, and SMS notifications to these employees/hosts.

You need to manually configure the form that will be used for adding and updating the employee records. In order to access and edit the form, please follow the steps listed below:

  1. Click on "settings" at the top right corner.
